Muscular Dystrophy Concern 18 mo old
I have a 18 month old male child.  He was previously doing an asymmetrical toe/calf raise on his right foot and was outtoeing on the right foot to a 75 degree angle, but shows no muscle weakness and has exceeded all milestones for growth and mobility.  In the past month the outtoeing has reduced to a 20-30 degree angle and has ceased asymmetrical toe/calf raising.  In the past week we have has this Creatine Kinase level tested and he was at 592.  I am wondering if this level is exceptionally high and if I should retest for possible errors.  Originally he was to be tested for Muscular Dystrophy and CP due to the toe raise but since this has ceased I am confused as to what this could possibly be a sign for and if a Muscular Dystrophy Neurologist is what we should be pursuing.  Because of his age should we expect these levels to rise?  Also he has noted staring spells that last for 10-30 seconds and happen 1-2 times a week-possible Absence Epilespy-and could this make CK levels rise?  Thank you again for any assistance or insight you can provide.

Sincerely
Christina
